Charmed I'm Sure!

Hi everyone,


Hope this Saturday finds you all well.


We're all having a bit of a lazy day here today so I thought I'd get in early with my Less is More card.  This week the challenge is "How Charming" - make and/or use a charm on your project.


Well I do have a small selection of charms (all of which are far too nice for me ever to think of using! Lol) and I also have a heap of jewellery, all bought with the intention of taking to bits and using in my crafting.


You wouldn't think it but I've been at this all afternoon - finally settled on using a flower charm which was part of a keyring from Primark ...




All supplies are Stampin Up, apart from the charm and the scalloped circle die. 


Well that's me for today, I'll pop round and see you tonight when I'm lazing in front of the telly eating some 'Saturday night munchies'.


(PS Hope this posts okay - the new edition of Blogger has installed itself!).


Bye for now


Suze xx

Elegant card. I know what you mean about collecting bits, I have a pile of Primark jewellery waiting to be used too. They always seem to be such a bargain.

This made me lol because I was sure I was the only one who didn't want to use the charms they have - it takes me all my time to will myself to use a charm!!!

My SU eyes are really twitching looking at this - so many lovely products that are on my 'need' list! What a clever idea for a charm... I don't have any charms so I'm rummaging around the house looking for alternatives I could use.
